The Show Never Stops in the Heart of the City this winter

Our Winter Campaign runs until 19 Sep, and looks to drive business to the city centre over the quiet winter months. AKL: The Show Never Stops in the Heart of the City will appear in Cinema, Press, Bus Shelters and digital online and on mobile. The campaign creative balances telling the story of the central city as a place where The Show Never Stops, and telling people about this handy new utility – the WHERE NEXT™ App.

o   3 Weeks of Editorial support across each title of Viva, Canvas, Weekend & TimeOut

o   Top 5 Picks from Aucklanders, curated via Heart of the City’s Facebook page and printed as a handy list every Monday on page 2 of NZ Herald

o   WHERE NEXT editorial device which will run across relevant stories (such as theatre and restaurant reviews etc) to help readers plan what they might do before or after their visit to the city

o   Digital - 6 x Online video content telling the story of ‘the show behind the show’, promoted on

o   A reader promotion – with $500 up for grabs every day for two weeks during August, when NZ Herald readers complete their idea of a perfect day or night in the central city
